Indigo has rolled out ‘6E double seat’ booking scheme, allowing customers to book two seats for a single passenger.

The double seat can be purchased from only, at time of making the original booking. It is not available through travel portals, airline call centre, airport counters or after making the original single-seat booking.

The seat selection charges under the scheme will be applicable for both seats and it will be a mandatory selection requirement at the time of booking.

The charges for the extra seat will be effectively up to 25 per cent lower than the original booking cost. This offer is effective for travel starting from July 24.

The extra seat booking will not be entitled for an additional baggage allowance; and can also be used by passengers travelling with a large musical instrument or a child’s car seat or for special seating needs due to personal comfort, size or disability.

Sanjay Kumar, chief strategy and revenue officer, Indigo said, “We had been receiving such requests and are happy to introduce the option to book two seats for a single passenger to ensure additional safety. 6E double seat will provide a stress-free flying experience to our customers.

“We are constantly working towards measures and services to strengthen air travel as the safest choice for travellers. We are confident that this option will enhance passenger comfort and trust, augmenting the overall demand for air travel”.
